Jerry,

The 30's are big enough for what we catch here in the GOM if you are chunking. For topwaters get a Stella 18K (or 20K) or if you like conventionals get one of the Accurates that fits your style. On my spinners and conventionals that I use for tossing I use 65# spectra and a topshot of 50# Momoi.

I have a 30 that I have 100# spectra on with a topshot of 80# Ande that I use fr chunking but I don't chunk a lot. They all have worked pretty well for me.

Of course you'll want a backup for each one though .... ;)
